Manchester United have failed in their bid to sign Bournemouth striker Joshua King in the last few days of the January transfer window.
The Telegraph reports that Solskjaer, who worked with the Norwegian striker when he was a youngster at Old Trafford, wanted to add him to his squad to solve the problems facing his attacking department following Marcus Rashford’s injury.
King is currently out of action due to a hamstring injury he sustained earlier this season but is expected to be back in action after the upcoming Premier League winter break. He was viewed as a perfect signing by the Manchester United manager, who wanted to secure his signing to add a cutting edge to his attack.
But with Eddie Howe determined to keep King as the Cherries fight to steer clear of relegation places – they currently sit 2 point offs safety, the 28-year-old will spend the 2nd half of this season at the Vitality Stadium.
